Hey bro, a gross consumption of system resources s a good sign of... sorry to be the one to tell you, but a virus. A good free virus removal/detector is avg ( http://free.avg.com/ ). If this isn't the problem, you might want to shut down extra junk. You can delete stuff from your Programs folder, or you can do a temp thin. Under run on the start menu, type msconfig. From here, you can shut down any programs that you don't need. Just make sure to restart when you're done.

Horizontal lines on bottom third of my Toshiba (Satellite Pro) Laptop with XP windows got fixed by flicking my finger on the laptop screen! Was it a loose connection? I don't know. Change of screen resolution did not help, Rebooting, did not help nor restoring to prior dates. Thank you guys.

You might need to go into the computer's BIOS and see if it's set to boot from a bootable CD or USB device. If it's set to only boot from the hard drive, it won't even look at other drives. Different computers use different ways to access the BIOS: you might try pressing the F12 key when the boot logo appears. Check your owner's documentation - it should tell you the procedure for your computer.

Hi,

It is unfortunate that the computer displays an error code as "ofoo 0131d". Request you to use the below link and install My Dell:

Then run a diagnostics using My Dell and let me know the test results.

Thanks and Regards.

Does the computer boot into Windows? If not it appears there is an issue with your hard drive. When you turn on the machine, try to get into the diagnostics mode of the computer (F12) and then select BIOS Diagnostics. From there run the tests to see if the hard drive is bad. From there you might have to get a new one.

The hard drive has failed. If you're in warranty, contact Dell for a warranty replacement of the drive - it's a customer-replaceable part.
If you're out of warranty, look on ebay for a good deal on a brand new hard drive for your Dell Inspiron 1525

Most dell machines do no come with dvd rewriting as standard. They only come with cd rewriting capability. Unless you specifically requested it as an add on to the spec it probably just has the ability to pay dvd's.

Most internet cafe's will have a machine with a dvd rewriter if you really need to copy a dvd

I feel the problem is with the RAM.

Please use 1GB atleast, DDR 2 SDRAM and check your system.

Before you decide to burn a DVD, it is important to know what kind of DVD you would like to burn. The type of DVD will usually determine the process you use to go about burning. The three most common types of DVDs to burn are Data DVD's, Multimedia Files to a DVD and making a copy and burning a commercial DVD. The burning process will be determined by the type of data you want to burn. You could do three possible actions:
  1. Burn Data to a DVD
  2. Burn Multimedia Files to a DVD
  3. Copy and Burn a Commercial DVD

Burning Data to a DVD Ordinary data such as documents, spreadsheets, database files and backup files require only general DVD burning programs. The data that you burn can be viewed on any type of computer with a DVD drive. Popular DVD burning software programs include Nero 9 and Super DVD Creator 9.8.8.
You will need to purchase or download any of the DVD burning software titles that are available on the market. For some computers that are purchased new, DVD burning software already comes installed and configured for your machine and DVD burner. You just need to open up your DVD burner software, choose to burn a data DVD and follow the instructions. You can usually burn a full length DVD (about 4.7 GB of data) in less than 20 minutes and even quicker with high speed DVD burners.

Burning Multimedia Files to a DVD
Multimedia files are usually larger files that include video either recorded from a TV set, camcorder or digital camera or downloaded from the internet. You may also want to convert an old VHS tape to a more user friendly DVD.

Copying and Burning a Commercial DVD
Many people use their DVD burner to burn copies of commercial DVDs. In most parts of the world, it is illegal to copy a commercial DVD and sell or distribute it. However, you may want to make a copy for archiving purposes.
There are many tools that can copy a commercial DVD. However, apart from the normal DVD burner and DVD burning software, you will also need special software that can decode or crack the digital rights management. It is also important to note that besides cracking the code and copying the data of the commercial DVD, you may need to shrink the file.
Most commercial DVDs are dual layer and have between 7 and 8.4 GB of data. These files must be compressed to fit on a normal 4.7 GB DVD. Once you have cracked the commercial DVD and compressed it, you can use ordinary DVD burning software to burn your DVD.

I speculate there isn't much wrong with the dvd drive if it plays a dvd and if you are certain there isn't anything wrong with your photo disc (it plays ok with other computers), a possibility is a problem with the media playing software...
